Hilary Duff has a special place in a lot of girls' hearts, since she played the one person we all wished was our best friend, Lizzie McGuire. Hilary started her time on the Disney Channel show when she was only 13 years old and during a Q & A, she opened up about how even though she was on a hit television show, she still felt the same pressures every teenage girl deals with.
"I remember feeling really insecure at 13. Like, part of my job was I had to have a certain confidence, and a certain bravery, but inside I felt like a very normal, insecure 13 years old girl," she wrote. "And I guess I would tell her to just take it easy on herself. That everything sorts itself out. That everything isn't such a big deal. And I'd give her a pat on the back and say, "Good job. Calm down!"
It's so great that Hilary is able to look back on her time on Lizzie McGuire and dish out some advice that everyone can totally learn something from. Hilary may have been living out her dream, but she was just like all the girls who were watching her on TV. She has come full circle!
